Two people were hospitalized after a fire broke out at a home in northwest Miami-Dade early Saturday.
Fire rescue crews arrived at the home near the 8900 block of Northwest 33rd Court just before 6 a.m., where flames could be seen shooting through the roof.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Ryan Rothenberg said crews worked to keep the fire from spreading further inside the home once they arrived.

Neighbors said they heard an explosion before the fire started.
"I mean, it rattled this place," Sylvester Williams said. "The whole neighborhood was shaking like a bomb."
Rothenberg said two people inside the home were taken to an area hospital, but did not release their conditions or say if any one else was inside the home.
"They have some tenants that stay in a little makeshift efficiency in the back," Williams said "That’s where the fire started and explosion was in the back of the house.”
Investigators have not released any details on how the fire started and it remains under investigation.
